It's not always as easy as 1, 2, 3. Which hormones should you balance first 🤔🤔
It can be confusing. If you're just getting started and don't know where to focus first - I've got you:
...or think your blood sugar.
Mismanaged blood sugar is one of the root causes to unbalanced hormones and our symptoms, so focus here first. You have to balance your blood sugar every time you eat or drink!
The female body is smart. Because you can reproduce, if you don't keep your blood sugar balanced it'll shut down other systems in your body from working as well to protect an unborn fetus - regardless if you're pregnant or not!
Which is crazy, but makes sense.
We all have different thresholds (mine is low) so play around with it. An easy fix is to cut sugar and don't drink caffeine and alcohol without a healthy fat. Then at each meal/snack focus on protein, healthy fat and complex carbs with fiber.
The Balanced Bombshells Recipe Guide is a great place to start and includes my two cycle synced meal plans!
One of your stress hormones - high levels can make you gain weight in your midsection, stay bloated no matter what you do, and make you feel more stressed than you actually are. It also lowers progesterone and can throw off your ovulation/cycle.
Take a look at your lifestyle and your workouts.
If you're experiencing any of these symptoms you'll need to actively slow down, which I know is hard, but it will jumpstart your success until you find more balance. Trust me, you'll never go back to your current lifestyle once you get a taste of that balance.
It can be easy to get stuck on cortisol. You'll love my Confidence Meets Cortisol Workshop where you'll learn the main cortisol increasers, what food to eat to naturally lower it, how to switch up your workouts and more!
3. ESTROGEN & PROGESTERONE
These sister hormones run your monthly cycle and naturally fluctuate each month. During the first part of your cycle estrogen is higher and in the second part progesterone is suppose to be higher (many women in our community suffer from low progesterone and don't even know it).
Balancing these two hormones will make you feel happier, more energetic, focused, and more like yourself. If you haven't started cycle syncing yet, now is a great time to start!
